Wednesday Afternoon Bible Study and Prayer Meeting

The Wednesday 1:30 PM Bible Study has begun a book by N. Graham Standish called "Paradoxes For Living".  To be strong, we have to be weak. To become mature, we have to become children. To live, we have to die are some of the challenges we are exploring. Standish suggests that taking time to delve into these oft-overlooked passages will help faith grow and give a deeper understanding of and closer relationship with God. Please feel free to join us.
